I’m doing the Edinburgh Festival at the Scottish ARTS Club August 20 – 25 at 12 noon daily
I wouldn’t normally be interested in the hassle of it all but I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse
So, I’ve decided to have fun with two of my closest mates.
I’ve known them both for forty years and have loved the music they create so i set them a task of creating a soundscape to go along with my poem
I’ve decided to use a twenty year old poem and update it a bit – it was featured on BBC Radio 4 in May and Jackie Kay, The Scottish Makar responded to my Men’s Morning by writing a Woman’s Morning – it was Pick of the Week – have a listen here
I received the music a week ago – so all in all, i’ve had a week to work on it
I could be stressed by that but I refuse to be because they are my mates and you can’t get stressed when working with your mates, can you? Can YOU?
If your in Edinburgh at all from this saturday – come along – see what we’ve created
The Scottish Arts club is beautiful – We are gonna Manc it up – be good to see you there
